Post a link to the photo and if it was in one my posts, I can probably help you. Otherwise, I'm sure there'll be someone on this forum who knows the source on sight :D

In the article What If-Finland had been prepared for the Winter War? by CanKiwi2, there is a photo of Finnish recruits marching. You can see the image here if you scroll down: viewtopic.php?t=172747&start=75 The image of the marching recruits. I am interested in getting a scan of this image for reproduction in a book.

Thanks,

Ruth

Hi Ruth

I sourced it from here - (http://www.mosinnagant.net/finland/CivilGuardThePhotoSectionPage4.asp) - this was written by Jarkko of http://www.jaegerplatoon.net - you'll find his email address on his website - if you contact him he may be able to point you to the source.
